The 4-star Hallmark Hotel The Welcombe is set in 157 acres of Italian-style landscaped gardens on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon. The Grade II-listed Jacobean-style hotel, which was originally built in 1886, features an oak-panelled lounge with a large fireplace, and some of the rooms feature 4-poster beds.

The property is around 10 minutes' drive from Stratford-upon-Avon, a historic market town and the famed birthplace of William Shakespeare. The town is home to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Swan Theatre and the scenic River Avon.

Warwick Castle is less than 15 minutes' drive away, and Anne Hathaway's Cottage -- a picturesque timbered farmhouse that was the childhood home of Shakespeare's wife -- is in the nearby village of Shottery, about a mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon.

The edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, while Birmingham city centre is around 45 minutes' drive away.

The hotel's restaurant has views of the gardens where, weather permitting, guests can dine al fresco on the hotel's terrace. As well as an 18-hole golf course, facilities include a spa with an indoor swimming pool, a health club with a gym, and a range of health and beauty treatments (extra charges apply).

Superior and Executive Rooms are more spacious than Classic Rooms. Wi-Fi is free.

Freezing cold draughty room; room service didn’t come after waiting for 45 minutes- apparently receptionist didn’t put order through-so cancelled it as it was going to be too late to eat then. Breakfast selection was ‘ordinary’ an dc no Th in v special.

The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately we had to move from our original, comfortable room because of the intermittent sound of either airconditioner or plumbing coming from the vent above the entrance to the bathroom, which we feared might keep us awake. We were offered a choice between 2 other rooms, the one we chose being comfortable although smaller. Sleep quality was enhanced by the firm mattress, but we did have the bin collectors outside the next morning. The dinner was delicious and well presented, and breakfast provided us with a great choice of fruits, breads, cereals and cooked options. Worthy of special mention is the swimming pool and gym: really clean and modern, a pleasure to use.

Lovely grounds for walks! Although we are not golfers, we thought the course was well maintained and attractive.
